welcome back to "cbs this morning." here are three things you should know this morning. the trump administration is reversing its course. african elephant trophy imports will now be allowed on a case be case-by-case basis. president trump called it a horror show last year when they said they would lift the obama era ban. the company 23andme will be required to include warnings about the test limitations. it can only detect three of more than 1,000 known inherited breast cancer gene mutations.
7:31 am
it uses dna from saliva to detect the genes. it cannot determine a person's overrecall risk at developing cancer. and target's rage will go from $11 to $12 this spring. it's their second pay raise in a year. they'll increase to $15 by 2020. it will bring in a better pool for applicants. stormy daniels attorney says she should be free to give her story on the relationship with president trump. it says that a nondisclosure agreement signed by daniels whose real name is stephanie clifford is null and void. the suit alleges since mr. trump himself never signed the agreement, she should be free to discuss her, quote, intimate relationship with mr. trump that lasted from 2006 to 2007.
7:32 am
we reached out to her lawyer but have not received a response. she has a new attorney good morning. >> good morning. >> why does someone who have a relationship want to discuss it? most people who engage in an extramarital affair don't want to tell it. why does she want to tell her story? >> she wants to share her story because there's so much misinformation spread by mr. cohn and others regarding what happened, the payment agreement. she wants to set the record straight, be heard around tell the true story. >> does she stand to profit?
7:33 am
>> absolutely not. she wants the public to know the truth. ted on the nondisclosure agreement is david denison. is that an alias for donald trump? >> yes. >> how do we know that? >> i know that and i'm making that assertion and if i'm false let mr. trump or mr. cohn come forward immediately and claim, in fact, it's not an alias for donald trump. it most certainly is and to conclude otherwise, you won't have to conclude mr. cohn who's admitted to the $130,000 payment made the payment on behalf of some other party, individual, that went by that ayas. >> he said that this was a danger to the president, then candidate trump, he took care of it with his own money, and mr. trump knew nothing about it. >> i think it is incredible to
7:34 am
insert that that happened. you would have to assume mr. trump was operated on his own, he knew about it and the draft had a place to sign, multiple places. the idea that he never knew anything about it i think it's strange credibility. >> do you really think you can get this nda thrown out and why? >> no, this isn't a publicity stunt. i wouldn't be wasting my time or reputation if it was a publicity stunt. we believe the nda will be thrown out. we believe s will be free to tell her story. >> but isn't it true denison has to sign it or the attorney and that makes the nda valid? >> no. in fact, he did not sign on his behalf. he signed on be f of the entity in orders to funnel the payment to miss daniels first of all, and second of all, mr. trump was
7:35 am
obligated toign the agreement in order for them to be legally binding. this is no longer will be trump. it's president trump. they're going to look at the damage done to your client versus damage done to a president, interrupting the president and damaging his office. when the judge says to you why is your client's desire to profit from his story over the country's business. >> first of all, my client doesn't stand to profit. you asked many that earlier and i answered you. number two, i don't think it's disrupting the president of the united states at all. these are very simple questions. did he sign the agreement, know about the payment, it doesn't take lock. he could answer it quickly, in less than 140 characters. >> why was she paid $130,000. >> >> i'm not going to get into information that i had with my client because that's privileged. i will tell you there was
7:36 am
payment of $130,000 and it was in an effort to silence her. >> the nda says she came into confidential information including but not limited to still images or text messages authorized or relating to d.d. who you say is donald trump. does she have photos or text messages that prove the affair? >> we're not going to answer that question this morning. >> but there is additional information that exists out there? >> there is certainly information and circumstance and information that i'm confident will be forth coming. >> mr. cohn said he made that payment. do you have any information that was from someone else? >> we have information. we're not ready to disclose that. >> you think it's from not michael cohn but somebody else? >> i think i've commented on
7:37 am
that enough. >> have you heard from michael cohn or anyone from the white house? >> we have not yet but it could be clarified easily. did president trump sign the don'ts and know about the negotiation and payment. it's very simple. >> was it a consensual relationship? >> absolutely. >> thank you. >> thank you. ahead, how oklahoma schools are looking to get more teachers. >> i had three opening at our elementary school and had four applicants. same openings and you have 14 to 15. >> we invite you to subscribe to our "cbs this morning" podcast. you'll get the news of the day, extended interviews and podcast originals. you can find them where, gayle?

8:35 am
>> senator, what is the next move that you devise for the administration in terms of not being fooled? >> in the past the united states has lived up to our bargain where we've entered into bargains only to see them break their end of the bargain. so what this administration needs to continue do is apply maximum pressure as it has. continue to engage china and other countries around the world to enforce stricter standards and saengss to make sure the united nations puts pressure on them and go after the heinous slave labor practices of the north korean regime. to cut off even more dollars to go back to prop up kim junk un. there's plenty of action to be take and this administration needs to take every one of them. >> let me ask you. the south korean leader said he received a pledge from kim jong-un that he ould would halt
8:36 am
testings during these negotiations. do you believe that? >> if they halt testing, that doesn't mean they halt their progress. they've reached the stage where they can say, sure, we're not going to test, but in the meantime they can develop new timelines, technologies. it doesn't mean they can give up and completely halt their knew clear program. i think it goes back to what they've said they would do in the paste. they've said they would do more. this is one of their lesser promises they've made and so we must continue maximum pressure and not give up on our desire and demand for the complete verifiable denuclearization. >> how optimistic are you? are you feeling optimistic and what mistakes were you referring to in. >> again, the mistakes we have made in terms of believing the kim family, his father's grandfather was serious about
8:37 am
the actions he was going to take. there's no doubt we have to have a resolution. again, i agree this is a positive development pt but will that positive development lead to concrete results of denuclearization, and that's what we have to have. i am skeptical. this is a good thing. but we have to make sure we're not fooled twice. >> what do you make of the resignation? the president has tweeted there's no chaos here. >> i think it's different. i think this is probably somebody gary has thought about long and hard as gary has things. i look forward to sitting down and talking with him how we can continue to work with the administration that are fair to the american people but also don't punish the american people. >> but the precipitating event in this case was the president's
